Catfish derby sees its biggest fish in 38 years
52-pound, 5-ounce behemoth caught this year

Today, the river has only half as much phosphorus as it did in the early 1990s. The Minnesota supports a large and relatively diverse fish population even under stressed conditions the water now has enough oxygen to support fish, mussels, plants and other life. Maintaining an appropriate level of oxygen makes it possible for the Minnesota River to support a healthy aquatic life. As mentioned in the following story, fishing in the Minnesota River is definitely becoming exciting! 

 

"Some monster catfish have been pulled from the Minnesota River in the 38-year history of the Catfish Derby held in Franklin, but none bigger than the 52-pound, 5-ounce behemoth caught this year by Steve Fisher of South Haven.

 

The Derby's record breaking fish was caught in the middle of the night, July 26-27. A sleepy Fisher was alone in his boat when his rod bent over and it was 'fish on'.'' Read more of the story here
